Role

Max has over 20 years of international design experience. He leads interdisciplinary projects from the creation of design briefs to the strategic design of buildings and urban areas.

His particular interest is to provide design solutions that optimise available spatial resources. Through a collaborative approach, he brings his extensive project experience into the design process by helping partners and clients reduce the inherent risks of design and development.

Max has a proven record of successfully delivering complex masterplanning and building projects requiring in-depth spatial analysis, design innovation and complex stakeholder negotiations. His recent projects include 22 Bishopsgate and 1 Undershaft, two key developments in the City of London and the development of Regeneration Development Frameworks for Glasgow City Centre.

His work in the cultural and education sector includes the development of a visitor circulation strategy for Natural History Museum in London and the Festival Wing Masterplan in London’s South Bank.
